Gilly’s Café, in Nailsea High Street, sadly closed after years of trading in the town.

But Gilly’s son has now taken over the lease at 2 Kingshill and renamed it Gilly’s on the Hill.

Charlie’s company G Chu Catering Ltd has employed Gilly and Danny Chu and a number of staff from the former café to run the new eatery.

Charlie named his new bistro in honour of his mum’s cooking skills and standing in the community.

Speaking about the changes, Gilly said: “We decided to close Gilly’s Café as we felt we had lost all goodwill with our new landlord and could not progress as a bistro.

“Myself and Danny could no longer as leaseholders see a future at Gilly’s Café.

Gilly’s on the Hill is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11am-11pm for brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and from noon to 6pm on Sundays for a traditional Sunday lunch.

The bistro has received rave reviews on Trip Advisor for the excellent food, service and relaxing atmosphere.
